Oh right, prepping Excel file contents for export to an RDBMS using a process where some business logic is involved is useless.   Look, they're just different tools.  There's nothing wrong with having good, potentially overlapping tools.  vba makes Office more useful for many of us -- I can do whatever I want inside of a spreadsheet with tools I already know inside and out pretty quickly without being an Excel power user.   And gosh, please heavens, don't even stick me...
  Exactly.  Dan Knight at Low End Mac has a great article showing the history of Office releases (and the release of its precursors) on the Mac here: http://lowendmac.com/musings/12mm/office-2013-panic.html    
In my best Admiral Stockdale voice:   This sure makes copyleft look like a smart idea.
    But they make Android handsets, kk?   The reason they're out of Brazil first is the same reason why Apple was in Brazil last -- you have to have a Brazilian factory to avoid the tariffs.  Your sales can't just be good, they have to be enough to support a factory to stay in that market.
Well, the hard drive probably is upgradeable, though not easily.  The Airs have upgradeable HD, just not RAM.
The RAM isn't user upgradeable, is it?
  I think that's the bottom line.  That was Jobs' point, I think, in the quote I posted earlier.  The jobs are gone because factories (that happen to be in China) are simply better at creating these devices now.  If you could do as high quality work in the US, you'd certainly save on shipping, so we already know we can't get the same quality at (cost of China mfg + shipping) here in the US.  I'm suspicious we can get the quality at all from current factories.   It's...
Didn't Jobs address this a little more directly, saying the time for the US to manufacture this stuff "has passed" or something similar, and that China's just too good at making quality stuff?   Here we go: http://www.catholic.org/technology/story.php?id=44500     I greatly prefer Jobs' direct, no pipe dream assessment.
  Didn't you just shoot down your own claim?  I mean, sure, 4G is hardware, sorta, but...  I'm guessing checking signals too -- sounds like it might just be 4G.
        I think the deal is that if you go directly to the albums (or search for, say, "Thin Lizzy"), it's not censored.   Type "Jailbreak" into the search box (note that what you typed was never censored, EWT, just the auto-complete suggestions), and those same track names are now censored.   You have to explicitly search for jailbreak for things with jailbreak in the title to be censored.    That's why I'm still saying the most interesting take home is that this shows...
